Hi Everyone
 Happy Wednesday

I am so thrilled to 
share with you 
 before and after pictures 
 of the Cornado beach house remodel 
This was 
such a fun project and a priveledge to work on

As you can see the living room before was dated 
the stone fireplace did not have a mantel
there was only one opening through the dining room into the kitchen
there was peach carpet through out the house
the stairway leading to the upstairs bedroom was a closed in tunnel
the ceiling was very low 

Here is the living room after picture
so much has changed
removing the wall on the left  and providing
 access to the kitchen opened up the entire house

Removing the old stone on the fireplace and creating 
a mantel as well as interest with  brick and mill work molding 
created a wonderful focal point for the room

opening up the stairway also helped to add interest
 and light to the room as well as eliminating the closed in tunnel effect
raising the ceilings allowed for a more 
expansive feeling to the room

The carpet was removed throughout the entire house
and tile was installed 
The  Ragno tile looks so much like wood 
it fools everyone 
 tile is such a marvelous product to use near the beach or a pool

The front entry now has a welcoming white dutch door and
my favorite nautical navy blue and white anchor door mat which
sets the tone for the rest of the house

I can't wait to share more pictures with you of the kitchen, bedrooms and front porch
